    Hello. I wanted to sign up for mailchimp and they require a physical address. I'm not from US and from what I have found, it seems there is no such thing as renting PO boxes in my country. I don't want to use my real address. I noticed that this address appears in every email. What can I do about it? Should I use a fake one? I'd prefer to stay legit.

    I don't believe they check the addresses as I have a ton of MC accounts with fake addresses.

    Isn't it a little risky? I have read that penalty for violating can spam act is $1600 per email. Did someone ever had legal trouble because of using fake address?

    Fake it OP !
    Unless you think the NSA and MailChimp work in collusion... fake it !

    Mine has been for a long time :

    <Insert Company Name> HQ,
    Manhattan
    New York City
    10001


    You aren't getting far in IM with such an overcautious attitude.

    I guess I will fake it, thanks. But getting into specifics, the address should be totally fake and not on the map, or is it better if I use someone's actual address?
    This address of yours, you just stated Manhattan? Nothing else, like street, number etc.?
